I am going to two cons this April and I am really nervous. I have only been to one con in my life and I cosplayed as Lightning Farron (everyone else did too). I want to enter into a costume contest with my Nightingale armor set but the stage kinds frightens me. Well I hope to enter the contest with my friend Laura who has been working on a Lulu (FFX) costume for the last year. As long as I have a friend to cosplay with I am less nervous.
Costume repairs to make before April 19:
Sew on two snaps that broke off in the last photo shoot.
Fix the bow with is cracking and peeling in weird places.
Repair the sword which took some damage in the last shoot.
Remake mask a little bit bigger.
Shorten cape because whenever I take a step back I step on the hem.
Hmmmm....wear the fur or not? It's not authentic but it is a personal touch that makes the costume mine.
